Chevron Deference: 40-Year Decision Reversed & Explained | Justin Slaughter Bankless

    • Technology

Is the Chevron Deference case good for crypto? Is it good for the U.S.? Or is this a giant tradeoff that will lead to bad outcomes? 

Crypto enthusiasts, pro-tech individuals, and those on the right say this will stop regulators from making random rules.

Non-crypto sources, mainstream media, and those on the left say it will lead to chaos, unchecked corporations, and poor governance.

So, what’s the truth? That’s what we’re here to find out. Our guest today is Justin Slaughter, current policy director at Paradigm and previous senior adviser of the SEC and chief policy adviser of the CFTC.
